Our wins in the Comp Plan!

What did we win in the Comp Plan

On May 18, the DC City Council voted to amend the DC Comprehensive Plan.

We had some wins with some very powerful language included in the Council’s amendments with your help and the help of City Council members and staff.

Take a look at this video to hear about our victories!

WHAT DID WE LOSE? There were also some key Comp Plan losses for vulnerable DC communities. Take a look here.


  • Now that the Council has approved amendments to the DC Comp Plan, what happens next?
  • The National Capital Planning Commission will take up and consider voting on the DC Comprehensive Plan as approved by the City Council. You can write to them today!
  • If approved by the NCPC, the Comp Plan legislation will head to the Mayor Muriel Bowser’s desk for her signature.
  • Then after the Mayor signs the Bill, it will head to US Congress where it needs passive approval since DC is not a state.
  • Once approved by Congress, the Comp Plan becomes a law . . . that is unless our lawsuit is successful.

Now what? Next steps:
